And that’s just it. The new iPad. Nothing more, nothing less. iPad. I guess Apple is known for its minimalistic designs so who is to say that they can’t apply the same thing to their nomenclature? All of us were expecting either the iPad 3 or iPad HD, but Apple did it again and to the ire of all the pundits out there. Well that goes to show you, Apple does what it wants and you’ll probably hate it at first,but given the right amount of time you will grow to love it.
We all knew what the new iPad was going to be. It was going to have a Retina Display, better cameras, faster processer and more memory, but for the most part, it was going to look the same as the iPad 2. Sure iPhoto was a pleasant surprise and the new advances in Garageband are great, but we all knew what was coming. I don’t know about you, but these Apple press events are seeming to become a little underwhelming. The last times I remember being super excited after one of them was when Steve Jobs introduced the iPhone and then the iPad later on. I guess nowadays it takes a little more than an update on an existing product to excite us. Here’s looking to you, Apple Television Set.
Tomorrow I will give you all a little more information on what we are going to offer as far as repairs on the new iPad.

As we draw closer to tomorrow’s Apple media event more and more rumors seem to crop up. Here are two tasty tidbits to consider: the iPad HD and a new Apple TV. Before we delve into the deeper meanings of these two devices, let me lay your questions to rest, no matter what the new iPad is called, iPad 3, iPad 2S, iPad 4G, or the iPad HD, iResQ WILL offer repairs on it. iPad HD repairs? Check that. Let’s begin discussing the new iPad “HD”.
As we all expect, tomorrow Apple is going to introduce the new iPad. Commonly heralded as the iPad 3, some sources, according to recent Gizmodo blogs, are claiming that the new iPad will be named the “iPad HD” in order to tout its new, hi-res Retina Display. From a marketing standpoint do you think this makes sense? Why would you want to deviate from the normal naming convention of using numbers? Will this confuse new customers? Actually, it’s kind of silly to sit around and speculate the implications of what Apple is going to name the new iPad. No matter what it is named, it is going to be the hottest tablet on the market. Let’s hope that the world’s shipping companies can keep up with the demand. I have already read reports on Apple Insider that freight companies are feeling the pinch as the release of the iPad 3 draws closer. Imagine that; gas prices may actually rise around the globe due to the release of a nominal Apple product. Yikes!
Finally, Apple TVs are going out of stock everywhere. Do you want a new Apple TV? Here is my advice, wait until tomorrow. Apple is more than likely to announce a new version of the Apple TV alongside the new iPad during tomorrow’s event.
There’s not much time left. Mass Effect 3 was released today, the new iPad HD and possibly a new Apple TV will be announced tomorrow. This is a good week for us tech geeks.
One last thing, we are a little ways off from Apple announcing a new version of the MacBook Pro or MacBook Air. So if you have a MacBook Pro with a cracked screen or a MacBook Air with a busted LCD screen, now is the time to get them fixed.
